Good for you ... Mangoes
A very good source of vitamin C which contributes to the normal functioning of the body’s immune system.
A good source of beta carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. This vitamin is needed for normal vision. The deeper the colour of the mango flesh, the higher the level of beta carotene. Mango flesh also provides another carotenoid called cryptoxanthin which is being researched for its role in normal eye health.
